2022 Walk Like MADD
REGISTER NOW! at www.walklikemadd.org/hawaii
We are so excited to be walking in person this year and we’re back at one of Honolulu’s favorite parks – Kaka’ako Waterfront Park! Join us on Saturday September 17, 2022. Walker check in begins at 7:00 am and the walk starts at 8:00 am sharp! An awards ceremony and prize giveaway will follow the event and you can be on your way home by 10 am!
Along with our traditional balloon arch launch and finish, lots of random prizes and fun snacks we are super excited to welcome Alex Otte, MADD Nationals’ President, as our guest. She will share her story and be on hand to meet Hawaii’s victims, their families and all of MADD Hawaii’s supportive community.
Funds raised through Walk Like MADD help further MADD Hawaii’s lifesaving mission and the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, which calls for high-visibility law enforcement, ignition interlocks or “in-car breathalyzers” for all convicted drunk drivers, support for the development of advanced technology and public support for these initiatives.
Mahalo to our Title Sponsor – First Hawaiian Bank! We are so happy to have so much support from our business community.
Virtual or in person walks are happening across the country and have three main components:
- Remember: We walk for those who no longer can and alongside those who are learning to walk again.
- Inspire: We walk empowered even when we feel powerless, as survivors when we have been victimized, and with purpose when we have lost our way.
- Commit: We walk with supporters who share our vision of No More Victims®.
“We will never forget the victims and their families, that’s why it’s so important to raise money so we can keep doing our mission critical work.” said Lori Harrison, MADD Advisory Board member, and the walk committee chair. “When someone signs up for Walk Like MADD, they help MADD make drunk driving a thing of the past.”
Despite a nearly 50 percent decline in drunk driving deaths since MADD was founded in 1980, almost 10,000 people are killed by drunk drivers and another 290,000 are injured in drunk driving crashes every year. In fact, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
Nationally fatalities in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes increased by 14.3 percent (10,196 to 11,654 fatalities) from 2019 to 2020. In Hawaii there were 27 impaired driving fatalities in Hawaii or 31% of all traffic fatalities in 2020.
